    Revolt against the snooze button. Awakening your senses with a hot shower accompanied by a few of your favourite songs is the perfect start and bound to make you smile.

    Exercise the smart way

    Exercise the smart way.

    Working out shouldn’t eat into your morning. Brief interval training – concentrated exercise with minimal rest – is just as effective as long sessions. Ten minutes can beat two hours: the key is intensity. Reps, reps, resp. Then rest for 10 seconds after every burst.

    Jump in the deep end

    Join the resistance

    Stretch your morning potential with a resistance band. They’re a great way to work some movement into your bed-to-breakfast routine. Hold the band and stretch your arms out to open your shoulders. Put it under your feet and grab it to stretch your legs. Ten of each will set you up for the day.

    Salute the sun

    Salute the sun

    Kick-start the day like a yogi with a variation of a 'sun salutation'. Your hamstrings will be stretched, your posture improved, and your energy will be sky high. Lift your arms and bend at the hips so your hands find the floor. Move down into a press-up, lower your body and then push your chest and head up.

    Read in bed

    We’re all for get up, get dressed, get moving – but only when the day calls for it. Once or twice a week, if those few minutes in the morning is all you have to yourself whilst we’re stuck indoors, enjoy them. Rest. Read. Do what you feel your body and mind needs. We can always find time for a home workout session later, right? Right.
